Using Technology to Reteach

While at the Network Team Institute training in Albany this week we looked at how data should be used to infom instruction and act as a diagnostic tool to determine which lessons the student mastered and which lessons the students may need addional support with.  Instead of simply reteaching the lesson (which can take a lot of time away from other duties, two alternative reteaching tools were demonstrated to the teams by the NYS Departement of Education.  Learnzillion and The Khan Academy are new and free ways to allow students to independently be tutored by programs that have been proven to make a difference in E-Learning.  Check out the hundreds of social studies lessons that are online.

I infact used the Khan Academy a few times in my class and the students were very receptive to it!  You can get is as an app on the iphone as well.
